Our Editing, Polishing, and Proofreading Business Writing course provides business writers with the skills they need to be able to understand basic grammar rules - and proofread their own and others' writing.
Your program contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams. Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, your instructor is also available via email or phone.
